Polygamy Fugitive Jeffs’ Nephew Is Jailed

From Times Wire Reports

A nephew of fugitive polygamist church leader Warren Jeffs has been jailed on contempt charges in Arizona -- the sixth person connected to Jeffs to refuse to answer questions before a federal grand jury.

Officials at the Central Arizona Detention Facility in Florence said Benjamin Jeffs Nielsen, 25, was booked July 14.

Jeffs has been on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list since May. Subpoenas were first served in January on some Jeffs family members.
